Apples and Apricots

Today I'd like to link up with WOYWW again this week.
What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Why on earth would you show your messy worktable? Well, because it's fun to see what others have on THEIR worktable by linking up to WOYWW. I'm just being nosy, that's all.

Two handmade books (one finished, one in progress) on my table below.

Left: a work in progress, the purple fabric book I told about in my previous post. Right: a handmade mini junk journal which I finished today. I'm going to show you that one coming Tuesday.

And below is the lace and fabric mess of the pile on the left of my workdesk. Well, I don't mind that kind of mess. Would you?

But just look what a precious gift I recently received from my grandma...

It's a stunning antique lace teapot holder... wow... A Tea Pot Holder. Can you image?? Just look at that delicate lace, so gorgeous! Me happy? Oh yeah!

I keep it on my worktable, so I can stare at and drool over it while crafting.

I cleaned my table a bit (a lot actually) today, because I got visitors. Don't think I'm usually this organized. Not me. I'm utter chaos.

Your turn.

What's on your workdesk?

Footynote: No idea why I titled this post Apples and Apricots...
I guess I must be hungry :)


  1. Wendy, I love your books, they are so pretty and I love the message on the front of the purple one. Anyone receiving that would be truly blessed.
    And I looked back at your previous post to see the cards and was very impressed with them and the crochet flower.

    You bring such joy!
    The fabric journals are so divine, pretty colours, fabrics and oodles of lace oh I could happily sit at your desk and create with you Wendy.
    What a precious gift from your Grandma. Will you keep as a source of inspiration and prettiness or do you plan to incorporate it into one of your beautiful creations?
    P.S. Adore the idea of the photography collage as a means of looking back at your creations for the month.

  3. Happy WOYWW!

    I love the lace, and your projects especially the lace book. Your workdesk is mega tidy!

  15. Kwijl, kwijl... sorry, moest even een zakdoekje pakken hoor... oh oh wat mooi allemaal weer! Ik herkende inderdaad je zelfgemaakte kaarten en uiteraard viel m'n oog zo plop op dat prachtige kanten boekje op je bureau. Zo chic! En wat líef van je oma om je dit supermooie kant te geven, ze weet wel waar ze je blij mee kan maken! Ik ga nog even verder genieten hier hoor! Lieve groetjes, Ira
